Prometheus in chains
My life is not done yet,
To resign and surrender
To the unexplained wonders.
Let me conquer this titanic strife
I don’t wanna be a devil`s pride.
Am I nourishing an evil spirit?
Or deaf to some celestial songs.
As I have found these ideals
Hideous and hectic,
That echo in-man's-holy practice.
Time and space has taught me well
About that enchanting spell
-How to cope and care-
This ever changing life fair.
How could I frame my Will?
In those old divine spells?
After knowing the truth,
And all wise sayings.
Is it fair to lame my inventive brain?
Isn`t it a weary pain
To embrace such fairy tales……..
Let your Prometheus unchain
